Hyundai & Kia To Recall Close To 3 Million Units In The US?

By  | 

It looks like Hyundai and Kia might have to issue a recall to bring back some of their models after some consumers complain that their car is catching fire.

The Center For Auto Safety reported that they have received more than 220 complains to the US government about fires while another 200 complained about melted wires, smoke, and burning odors. Models that were listed out including the 2011- 2014 Kia Sorento, Kia Optima, Hyundai Sonata, and Hyundai Santa Fe. The 2010 – 2015 Kia Soul was also included.

According to Hyundai, they are already monitoring and investigating the reports and that the fire can be caused by a few factors. Kia also added that they are looking into the matter right. Both do not seem to have an answer as to why these models are catching fire.

If there is really an issue here, the recall will affect up to 2.9 million cars and SUVs in the US.
